The Carolina Jessamine I planted on our wood privacy fence has climbed up into some low hanging branches of the Live Oak tree. It is full of beautiful yellow blossoms now, it looks wonderful. But I'm worried if it will harm the tree. The vine does not attach, it twines around anything it can hold onto but doesn't really grow big enough to choke any branches.

I want to keep the Live Oak healthy. Should I remove the part of the vine that is up in the tree?

It's a native vine, I see them growing around pine trees all the time with no harm done to the tree. It's not nearly as aggressive as the Asian wisteria.

They're compatible pals, let them enjoy each other.

I left them alone and have enjoyed them for over two weeks, they are still blooming.

CaptnRn,
They look beautiful!
It really adds something to a tree doesn't it?
Some people grow clematis in their bushes and trees
also. They don't harm shrubs or trees and also
have beautiful blooms of all different colors.
I have it growing all over my property, its wooded and
I love spring with all the lovely flowers on my wild
"scrub oaks".
